If you haven’t heard yet, it’s Pride Month! And cities around the world have been celebrating with energetic parades, streets lined with rainbow flags, drag performances, and memorials and tributes to activists, heroes, and the everyday people who have made a difference in the LGBTQIA+ community.
And no city is celebrating in 2019 like New York, where two massive events — WorldPride and NYC Pride — are merging into one from June 26–30 to celebrate “Millions of Moments of Pride” and Stonewall50, the 50th anniversary of the raid and riots at the Stonewall Inn that set into motion the modern gay rights movement.
With millions of people expected to participate in events over the course of this weekend, we’ve created a handy guide to spill the tea on the beautiful madness that will be taking over New York and adorning the city with plenty of glitter.
Ophelia, the cocktail lounge at the top of the Beekman Tower is donating $1 for each of its Pride cocktail, Ophelia’s Pride Aviation, to The Trevor Project.
